Week 1 in San Pedro, HOOOHOOOOEYY! [spelled Jujuy:)]

Well hello there! Hope you are all doing well!

This week was rather crazy. It was a pretty crazy adjustment having a new area, a new comp, new members and investigators, new pension mates [apartment mates], etc...Our area is huge and after 1 week I still haven't even visited some of the neighborhoods that are ours. San Pedro is not super urban but it is really big, and probably has the worst drainage system in the world. It's been raining a lot and all the water goes straight to poor little Barrio Patricios and floods the streets and houses. Huaico was pretty affluent, like the members are lawyers and pro soccer players, but the people here hardly have anything. They are all super nice though and I've met some great people already. The best part is that we are helping families. There are a lot of families that are members but not all active and a lot have problems with addictions, but we have been visiting a lot with them and can tell that they are sincerely changing, and a whole family came to church yesterday, it was a happy moment! Also I gave a talk in sacrament meeting yesterday (my 1st time in Spanish I think) and it went very well for having found out during Gospel Principles class. I talked about how the GOSPEL BLESSES FAMILIES!!! It really is true!

Hermana Chumioque has had some health problems this week, so we spent a good amount of time in the clinic here. Keep her in your prayers. She spent the night last night in the hospital and Presidente and Hermana Chaparro came to stay with her so I am in a trio today with Hermana Chavez de Mexico and Hermana Jones de Chicago.
 Well I love you very much I really do! Thanks for the prayers! Being on the mission more than ever before I have seen how blessed I really am. I made a list of all the blessings I could think of that I have because of living the gospel. It didn't take a long time to see that there are tons and tons! And every child of God deserves these blessings, and I am so grateful that I can help them receive them too. Hasta lunes! 
Con amor,
Hermana Hooke
